4.  Juan Martin del Potro vs  Dominic Thiem (US Open)
Winner: del Potro 1-6, 2-6, 6-1, 7-6, 6-4
One of the greatest stories this year was Delpo’s run at Flushing Meadows. After almost giving up in his fourth round match against Thiem, the Argentine scripted one of the comebacks of the year, saving 2 match points before claiming the highly entertaining encounter. This was one of the best Grand Slam matches to be held at the US Open.
“I saw the crowd waiting for more tennis, waiting for my good forehands, good serves. I took all that energy to change in a good way and think about fighting and not retiring,” del Potro said.
